About the Hermannsburg School


Welcome to the Hermannsburg School. This website was launched in 2002 as a dedication to the Hermannsburg School of Art.

My interest in Hermannsbug art began after I acquired a watercolour by Walter Ebatarinja. I remember being struck by the painting and wanting to learn about it and the country it depicted. In 2014 I established Ghost Gum Gallery in Alice Springs. For me the gallery provided an opportunity to meet local artists and to make contact with fellow art enthusiasts. Some of my regulars included the current generation of Hermannsburg painters and historians like the legendary Mr Dick Kimber. That lovely space is now gone however my passion for Hermannsburg art remains as strong as ever.

If you have any history to share about your Hermannsburg art or artists please add it to the guestbook!

Kind Regards,
Christopher Harold Hunter
